Sean Paul's back, and he's about to bring the heat this summer. The Jamaican dancehall superstar first sparked the world in 2002 with his breakout hit, "Gimme The Light," and the fire has been burning brightly ever since. Hot on the heels of his multi-platinum, Grammy-winning classic album, Dutty Rock, he dropped the 2005 RIAA platinum smash The Trinity. That album led off with the Top 10 single "We Be Burnin'," followed by the 1 smash "Temperature." Now Sean Paul is stoking the flames once more with his highly anticipated fourth album, Imperial Blaze.
The Kingston-born rhyme slinger has already sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, and has become the most successful Jamaican artist of all time on the U.S. charts spurred by a trio of 1 pop singles, and five top ten hits. But despite his scorching track record, Sean Paul is taking nothing for granted. "Imperial Blaze is like the king's fire," says the keeper of dancehall's flame. "It's all about going hard and keeping it hot." Case in point: the album's infectious lead single, "So Fine," which blends irresistible harmonies and rapid-fire lyrics with a futuristic backdrop of digital percussion.
